Our recent warm and sunny days
create ice conditions that
are downright dangerous.
Thawing ice, especially
on lakes and ponds,
accounts for more breakthroughs
and drownings than any other
time of year.
Look for ice porosity and bubbles
which occur when slabs are
floating just beneath the surface.
Even when temperatures are well
above freezing, frozen ice melts slowly,
and hardly supports its own weight.
Much less a person!
